Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced the indictment of Kevion Howze (DOB 11/03/98) for one count of Attempted Murder (F1), one count of Discharge of a Firearm on or Near a Prohibited Premises (F2) and one count of Felonious Assault (F2). If convicted, Howze faces a maximum possible sentence of 22 years in prison.

On March 25, 2022, in the middle of the day, the victim and Howze were at the Hyde Park Kroger, where Howze was employed. Following a physical altercation between the victim and Howze, the victim left Kroger. Howze, who was carrying a 9mm firearm, chased after the victim and shot at him four times in the Kroger parking lot. The victim was grazed by a bullet, but he was not seriously injured. Other shoppers were present in the parking lot at the time of the shooting.

Howze is currently incarcerated in the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $500,000 at 10% bond.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters commented, “I know I sound like a broken record, but everyone needs to wake up. Senseless gun violence is happening in every neighborhood across this county. It shouldn’t only grab headlines because it happened in Hyde Park.

It is a miracle that no one was seriously injured. People should be outraged at what is currently going on. No one should fear getting shot while they are simply trying to shop at their local Kroger.”
